Man Utd make Spurs’ Lloris a shock target

Manchester United have made Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris a shock target as they line up replacements for David De Gea should Real Madrid swoop in January, the Daily Express has claimed.

Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has identified United’s De Gea as the man they want to become the long term replacement of the aging Iker Casillas – plotting a £30m bid for the young Spaniard in January.

It would be a significant blow to Louis van Gaal should he lose his number one with De Gea rapidly developing into one of the top keepers around.

Casillas has struggled to hold onto his spot at Madrid and is reportedly keen on a move away from the Bernabeu during the upcoming transfer window.

Llrois only penned a five year extension at the North London club in July but has never been shy in stating his options would be open if Spurs continued to fail to break into the Champions League places.

And should United lose De Gea they could make a £25m swoop for the 27-year-old Frenchman – although De Gea has also expressed his happiness at United.
